Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

I love soup SO much in the fall. I make a new kind all the time based on what I have in the house. Last weekend I put this combo together and it was a hit with everyone so I thought I would share it.

Ingredients

2 large (or 3 small) sweet potatoes

2 apples

2 cups soy or coconut milk

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. maple syrup

Optional: 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed well

Instructions

  1. Peel and dice sweet potato and place in an oven safe dish. Core apples and cut them into quarters and place in the baking dish as well. Leave the apples skins on for added colour, flavour, and nutrition!
  2. Drizzle sweet potatoes and apples with avocado or grapeseed oil, sprinkle the cinnamon on tops, and roast them at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes.
  3. Once done, place the apples and sweet potatoes in a blender (I use a vitamix) and add the milk and maple syrup. I recommend soy or coconut milk as I like the flavor compliment of these with the sweet potato and apple, but you can use any milk that you prefer.
  4. Blend until smooth…adding more milk if you prefer a thinner soup. Once blended, you can eat the soup cold or hot as it is, or with added white beans left whole or blended in. My preference is with white beans added whole as I like the added texture.

This soup makes a great nutrition packed lunch or supper for anyone in the family and will keep in the fridge or freezer quite nicely.

Hope you enjoy! Until next time….stay healthy!
